    This is not a reputable article. Looks like fake news to me. Does not even make sense.

    It's the DuffleBlog. The military version of the Onion. Satire.

    Hilarious tongue-in-cheek. Duffleblog can usually be counted on to skewer current topics.

    Times like this I'm glad we only have one involved. I don't know how some people do this.

    I lived at the academy, my neighbors were all the 0-6's at USAFA...
    (the guy across the street was the Director of Admissions/Registrar)

    Smiles, mowing lawns, and being a generally nice kid....that didn't work.

    Never thought of bribery...
